Court orders government to build free toilets along Kenyan highways

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

The High Court on Tuesday ordered the government to facilitate the building of free toilets and sanitary facilities besides Kenyan highways for travelers.

The verdict was given by Justice Kossy Bor after a petition was filed by Adrian Kamotho. He requested the court to order the Ministry of Transport to construct sanitary facilities besides the highways in the country within 60 days.

Justice Bor directed Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia to create a team from the council of governors (CoG), Kenya National Highways Authority (KenHA), Kenya Rural Roads Authority and Kenya Urban Roads Authority to look into the issue.

However, the Judge did not give the 60-day deadline to the government as requested by the petitioner, because of the budgetary requirements of formulating and implementing the policy.

Currently, only Machakos County has built free toilets along the highways, one at Mlolongo, Chumvi Junction and Mwala Junction.

In his petition, Kamotho referenced Article 42 of the Constitution, which entitles every citizen to a clean and healthy environment and reasonable standards of sanitation. 

“The national transport policy should incorporate toilets and other sanitation on road stops on the national and international trunk roads. The policy should take into account the need to have toilets and other sanitation facilities maintained properly by the county governments once constructed,” ruled the judge.
